Abstract:

The Army Command and Control System ACCS is the system of systems for Army command and control. The tactical portion of ACCS is the Army Tactical Command and Control System ATCCS. ATCCS applies to Echelons Corps and Below and presently extends down to the brigade level. Efforts within the Army are ongoing to extend the ATCCS to the battalion level but have not yet been completed. This thesis proposes a battalion and below command and control B2C2 system architecture for the armor battalion. The architecture defines the necessary component systems to be included within the architectural framework and how those component systems should be integrated within a B2C2 framework. The component systems involved are the Intervehicular Information System IVIS, the Combat Vehicle Command and Control CVC2 System, the Command and Control Vehicle C2V, the Common Ground Station, the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System SINCGARS, Mobile Subscriber Equipment MSE, Enhanced Position Location and Reporting System EPLRS, and Common Hardware Software CHS.
